CLOSED! Poilu Giveaway! CLOSED!

I said I was gonna do a giveaway in May and here it is!

  • Leave a comment with your two favorite colors or colors you would like your Poilu to be! Just to be super clear, you are not choosing from the photo below I just want to know 2 colors you like :)
  •  Everyone can play, I will ship out of the US :)
  •  Get 1 extra entry for tweeting or posting on your blog about this giveaway and leave the link in a separate comment!
  •  I'll use random.org to pick a winner and announce the winner June 1st! I will be custom making this Poilu, the Poilus shown below have already found homes:)








(These are just examples, not what you are choosing from!)

What is a Poilu!?
Poilu means furry in French, Poilus can often be found digging in the grass in the wee hours of the morning looking for worms, not to eat but to befriend. It is not unheard of for a Poilu and worm to stay friends for life.

Poilus live off a diet of PB&J sandwiches, their favorite jam is usually apricot, sometimes blackberry.

When a Poilu becomes excited or frightened the fur on his face will poof out!

~Closed~

Oh wow, Danielle! You have really created dynamic cuteness with these little guys! I followed the link that Phil Reed had up on his Battlegrip.com website... he gets bonus points in my book for sharing these!

If I had to pick two colors, I'd say a purple body with a yellow face... makes me think of Skeletor! But cuter!

Thanks for holding this contest... I'm going to post about it on my blog and my facebook... already retweeted your tweet... my how our vocabulary has become insane of late! (^_^)

its hard picking two colours because they would look rather good in a few. either yellow and black or pink and black i think.
